    Looks great! Yeah, it's going to be a little more challenging to apply on my truck window, but I'm on my 3rd marriage and 4th child. I'm either going to summon all the patience I've developed and be successful, or screw it up and punch through the window! -Then I can lay the new window on the couch and apply it easily, lol!

    Does their controller and switch look pretty good? I'm probably going to have to use theirs.

    Yeah. I'll dig it out and snap some pictures when I get back home. The only thing I didn't like is they want you to find and tap into an ignition switched power wire that can take an extra 25 amp load so you can only use it when the engine is running. I get why they want you to do that, but finding a switched wire that can take that extra load might be hard to find. My setup uses a battery feed with a relay, but my factory switch only has power in start/run so I had it covered. I also don't see how you can crack into their timer box as their switch is remote mount from it but is connected to it by what looks like a home phone type of cord and connector. If I didn't already have my wiring for the mirrors I would have used their box but probably would pull from a battery feed and use a relay like I currently have but hook the trigger wire for it to any switched feed so that the timer box would still only get power when the truck is running.

    Hopefully these pictures help with what I tried to explain earlier lol! The only bad thing with the way I wired mine vs using their setup is the factory rear defrost switches are timed at 10 minutes to shut off where this timer is set at 20 minutes per cycle. Not a big deal to me as all I have to do is hit my switch a second time and run another cycle.
